If there’s one group of people President Donald Trump knows he can count on, it’s his fiercely loyal supporters.
“I met with leaders from China, Egypt and Jordan. Gorsuch was confirmed,” Trump boasted to the crowd. “The media is saying nice things and no one’s talking about Russia. What a difference just 59 tomahawk missiles can make.”
But when a coal miner, played by cast member Kyle Mooney, asked Trump a question about a federal rehab program that’s preventing his wife from moving to a new town with him, Trump brought up how alike he and his supporter really are.
“That’s the exact problem I have. My wife doesn’t want to move either,” Trump explained. “She still lives 200 miles away, it’s costing the federal government millions of dollars. It’s nuts, am I right?”
When the coal miner pressed Trump on the issue, the president, on a whim, decided to slash the federal rehab program altogether.
“Don’t worry about that because we’re going to get rid of it. Junking it. Junked,” he assured his weary supporter. “Don’t you feel better now?”
To which the supporter replied, “I’m not sure. But I voted for you and you’re my president.”
Trump continued to field questions from his uncertain fans and to cut random programs. Then, he offered a spot-on metaphor for his people’s boundless support.
“See, that’s why I came here: You people stand by me no matter what,” Trump said. “It’s like you found a finger in your chili, but you still eat the chili because you told everyone how much you love chili. It’s tremendous.”
Before setting off in his helicopter, the president added: “Keep eating that finger chili and remember, I’m one of you!”
